The 2018 Flower Show

Location: Portland, Maine

The theme for this show was ‘Rooted in Maine’ and our goal was to create a dining space that transported the visitor to a bouldered oasis at the base of their favorite Maine mountain. The concept evoked our desire to showcase the pride we have in our craftsmanship and horticultural activity. The display won 6 awards, a flower show record.

 


 

The Bayberry Project

Service Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings and Regular Maintenance
Location: Kennebunk, Maine

The goal of this project was to restructure the yard and driveway in an attractive yet functional way that allowed for many visitors.  The stonework, with its unique curves, provides plenty of room for extra cars. The design was complete with simply planted beds, chosen by the homeowner to keep the focus on the architecture. 


 

The Parsons Beach Project

Services Provided: Execution of Master Design Plan, Field Alteration of Garden Beds, and Regular Maintenance
Location: Kennebunk, Maine

With a blank canvas (literally just dirt!), we were provided a rough plan and given the creative freedom to transform the property. Planting the property (a 4 month project!) was very rewarding work with a spectacular result.


 

The Goose Rocks Project

Services Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings, and Regular Maintenance
Location:
Kennebunkport, Maine

The primary goal of this project was to create outdoor living that offered a mix of formal and natural spaces, which the design was tailored to reflect. The secondary goal was to create an elevated vantage point to soak in the stunning ocean views. The installation of large granite flagging leading up to a curved retaining wall created a terrace that accomplished this goal. The full design came together by keeping with a rustic themed landscape, complete with native plant life.


 

The Goose Rocks Cottage Project

Services Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings, and Regular Maintenance
Location:
Kennebunkport, Maine

The goal of this project was to create a design that provided a private entry to the property’s rental cottage, without completely separating the two. It was also very important to be conscientious of the surrounding marsh. The bold paver driveway and landscape lighting detail rounded out the gorgeous design.


 

The Marshall Point Project

Services Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Outdoor Kitchen, Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings, and Regular Maintenance
Location:
Kennebunkport, Maine

The goal of this landscape renovation stemmed from the homeowner’s desire for an outdoor kitchen. Based on an initial consultation, we generated designs that reflected the homeowner’s goals and style.

In addition to the kitchen, a new, larger patio was installed using geometric granite pavers creating a usable space overlooking the ocean. The redesigned and rebuilt garden beds brought the full vision together.


 

The Maine St Project

Services Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings, and Regular Maintenance
Location:
Kennebunkport, Maine

The goal of this project was to design a patio for the homeowner’s love of bluestone.  The unique shape allows for a firepit on one side and a dining area on the other, maximizing the patio’s use. Keeping the garden beds small, provided more lawn for the dogs of the house to enjoy. The driveway is stunning allowing a soft entrance to a quiet escape. 


 

The Old Fort Project

Services Provided: Landscape/Hardscape Design and Installation including Stonework, Lighting, Irrigation, Turf and Plantings, and Regular Maintenance
Location:
Kennebunkport, Maine

With a renovated boarding house as our backdrop, this landscape began as overgrown hedge-rows and a glut of undergrowth. Our design intended to open the space up allowing an opportunity for exploration and communal gatherings. From the patio steps, one can venture into a hidden terrace and enjoy a boulder seat by the firepit. Or one can wander barefoot down the rolling lawn into an activity area surrounded by native plants and trees. Each nook is interconnected to provide flow and continuity, allowing the homeowners a path to their desired destination no matter where their journey begins.

This project continues to evolve!


 

The 2017 Flower Show

Location: Portland, Maine

The theme for this show was “Plant Something Maine.” Inspired by the granite bench, the plants (native to Maine) fit nicely and provided a rustic feel to the display. The display received a great response, winning 3 awards including ‘Best in Show’! The bench now resides beside the Tree of 40 Fruit on Thompson’s Point in Portland, for all to enjoy.
